    Tatume, For "good quality", domestically produced .38 S&W revolvers, I'm sure that you're 100% correct but that is NOT so for some overseas revolvers in the .38 S&W caliber. = New WWII Enfield revolvers were often specified "within war service...

    Char-Gar, YEP. = In my college days/DAZE, I was employed as THE railroad detective for an industrial "short line" & routinely carried a WWII-era S&W Terrier as a sidearm. That 200 grain soft-lead bullet was plenty for self-defense &...

    38splpete, In my experience, ANY hollow-base OR "cup-base" lead boolit that works for .38SPL will work FINE in the .38 S&W, as that hollow or "cupped" base spreads out to fill the barrel quite well. (I once owned a Enfield-made WWII "Commando"...

    peter72, Inasmuch as Husky never made BP-only firearms after the turn of the 20th Century. I wouldn't worry over much about the safety of the firearm (presuming that it's tight & otherwise in sound condition). AFTER you have a chamber-cast &...

    peter72, ONCE MORE, you NEED a chamber cast to see what EXACTLY that the caliber actually IS. = MANY older/antique firearms were rebored/rechambered in the pre-WWI & post-WWI era. Btw, because of Jessie at JES, reboring/rechambering to a...

    BlackpowderSweden, What Husky made isn't as important as a chamber cast to see if it has been modified for another cartridge. Btw, do you happen to have a case drawing for the 9.3x57R case?? = I didn't know that there WAS such a rimmed case in...

    Peter72, NICE old hammer drilling.= I love the old hammer cape guns & drillings. IF it was mine & the chamber cast proves it to be a 9.3x7R, I would load it with an about 220 grain GCCB in front of 34 grains of IMR3031 for hunting any game up...

    MT Chambers, Whether loaded HOT or loaded DOWN to below .22LR velocity, the 5.56x45 NATO, .222 and/or .223 are better in every way that the Hornet OR the .218 Bee. = As I said, unless you already have a Bee and/or a Hornet (as I have a Hornet), I...

    Harter66, MAYBE I'm NOT the right person to ask as I have both a .22 Hornet & (at least until my Darla "adopted it" & now calls it, "My little carbine",) a Model 7615P Remington pump-rifle in 5.56mm NATO. The Hornet in 2018 can be up-loaded...
